You know those people that are always like, “things happen for a reason?” Maybe you’re one of them. I am the person that is like sure, some things happen for a reason. Other things happen and I’m like, “Why the fuck did that happen?” And there is like no way I will ever arrive at an answer. I don’t think that everything happens for a reason. Some things so do though, and I love when you’re like, yeah, that’s totally why that happened.
The jobless situation I’m in now so happened for a reason. The stress was killing me. I mean it was literally doing bad things to my mental and physical well-being. Beyond that, I think I needed something like this to happen in order for me to once again stand back and say, What is it I really want out of life? How can this change in direction get me there? I wish I could say I have it figured out, but it’s only been two and a half weeks, so be patient. Selling everything (or most of everything) we own and building a small house somewhere somewhat off the grid sounds completely amazing to me, but I know that it’s not in the cards at this very moment. I plan to shuffle and re-deal until it is though.
On a lighter note, look at all this fun Rob and I are having with some much needed time off. Yes, it was chilly. It’s possible we had very little feeling in our hands when it was all said and done, but we did have a good time.
